I am the very proud winner in the "Outstanding Holistic Therapist Category" in the 2017 Centre Of Excellence Awards!
The application process to enter the awards was tough. I had to complete a lengthy questionnaire and then film a 2-minute video explaining why I thought I should win this award. I did this in between running my business, studying, looking after the kids and running the house!
The application process was very insightful. It made me think and take stock of what I have achieved, something I don't normally have time to do.
This time last year, Blossom Wellbeing Cheshire didn't even exist. Last November, eight months into an amazing new job, I was dismissed without warning.
As a single mother and provider of two daughters, I hit rock bottom.
However, I am extremely resilient and determined. Now I am so glad I listened to my gut feelings and followed my dreams and opened my Wellbeing Practice.
I have had the most incredible ten months; It is so rewarding to help clients become better versions of themselves and reduce worry and stress in their daily lives.
I have filmed educational videos, absorbed massive amounts of knowledge, passed numerous exams, become a public speaker and even teach classes.
I have been a guest on podcasts and was even interviewed on a New York Radio show!
Recently, I was appointed preferred provider for a private health group, and this award is the icing on the cake!
When people tell you, "You don't fit in".... Take it as a compliment.
When people tell you, "It won't work"....Carry on.
When people tell you, "Not to bother".... Listen to your inner self.
When people tell you, "You are incompetent".... Study more.
When people tell you, "You have no client base".... Build one.
Most of all...when no one else does...believe in yourself.
Face your fears, make mistakes, accept full responsibility, learn from them and grow.
Realise that ongoing personal development is key to being a success
My business has flourished in a very short period, because of the courses on offer at The Centre of Excellence. I had previously trained in the treatments I offer at Blossom Wellbeing, COE taught me how to build my business professionally, whilst increasing my skill base.
I am so grateful to The Centre of Excellence and proud of all the students and everyone who entered these awards. Hours of study go into completing each course, and I believe everyone deserved to win.

6.08am Friday 15th September.... I am up early... waiting for some news, today is the day that I get to find out some really important news.
I couldn't sleep so I came downstairs whilst my angels sleep so I could do some work (and see if there is any NEWS).
Off I went to watch one of my lovely clients be atuned to Reiki Level 1 for the day.
